But as the soon-to-be leader of the free world, Trump "realizes he needs some allies" in the cities, particularly among youth, Harvey said, talking with reporters after meeting with Trump at Trump Tower.
He told reporters gathered at Trump Tower Friday that he had instructed his appointees to "be yourselves and say what you want to say".
"But it's just me following orders from my friend President Obama who said "Steve, you've got to" - as he told everybody - 'get out from behind your computers, stop tweeting and texting and get out there and sit down and talk. I did what I was supposed to do". Following his closed meeting with Donald Trump, 70, the talk show host disclosed some of the topics of their discussion and even revealed that the two bonded.
The real estate mogul, Harvey said, made an introduction to Ben Carson, Trump's pick to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development. "We're going to do something with all of the major inner cities to bring about some change and help some of these young people out".
"They have a plan for the inner cities but they need some help and so that's why they called me". "Carson expressed that cause, quite naturally, he's from Detroit", said Harvey. We're gonna get some things started. "And he said he wanted to do something...and so, we're going to see".

But in Donald's defense, the Family Feud host is also a known sexist and racist, so they probably had plenty to talk about outside of politics!
"He seemed really honest", he said of Trump.
Steve may be a no-show come January 20, but he has extended an invitation to the Trump family on Family Feud!
"Don't worry about me", he said.
